Books: What My Child is Reading
I usually post books to go with our monthly theme. Recently, I've found a great community of readers through Mouse Grows, Mouse Learns linky party. You simply share your favorite books from the past week, so I decided to join in.
A new pigeon book, happy dance! Duckling asks for a cookie, politely, and receives it. Pigeon can't believe it. He asks for things all the the time and doesn't get them, like driving the bus or staying up late. He eventually loses his temper (surprise, surprise). You'll have to check it out for the hilarious ending.
I discovered this book at the doctor's office. Unfortunately, it was missing the last few pages and my library does not own it. I finally got my hands on it through Interlibrary Loan (ILL). All of the characters are pumpkins. Dr. Pompo finds a stem. Could it be a horn? After each character guesses what the stem could be, the pumpkin who has lost her nose comes forward. Being a doctor, you'd think Dr. Pompo could fix it, right?
Bobo loves the names of the gnarlies, Grubby Gurgle, Stanky Stoo and Ooga-Mooga. These three like getting messy and don't like cleaning up. They are very happy until a snooty butterfly makes them feel ugly, because they don't look like her. After trying to turn into butterflies themselves, they discover they were beautiful all along. Our favorite is the three-eyed gnarly.
